2022 Application Thread for Communications Program

Fall 2022 Application Thread for Communications Program

Hi all,

I am from Brazil, an international student already getting craaaazy with this! 

I can't be the only one here who's already started this process, right?! I believe we can help each other here through this stressful process :D

I have my BA in Communication, an MBA in Marketing, and I am in the last semester of my master's in Communication with a concentration in technology and culture. My key research topics for Ph.D. are fan studies, participatory culture, social media, media studies, and gender studies. 
I'm primarily looking at programs with technology/media/gender emphasis. Anyone else out there interested in those topics?

Anywho, here is my list-in-progress:

- Upenn

- University of Florida

- University of Oregon

- Syracuse University

- University of Massachusetts - Amherst

- USC

- University of Maine

- UC davis

- UC San Diego

- Rutgers

- Cornell

-  University of illinois at urbana-champaign

- Northwestern University

Can you also share other programs that you might be applying to as well?

Thank you very much!!

Hi guys. Has anyone heard any news about MCC interview calls?

I applied USC at the final deadline. I have called the admission office and they told me that it would not influence my chance if I submit my application in the final deadline. (*^_^*)

Welcome Thayane!

I am applying to:

Rutgers (Media Studies),

University of Minnesota (Communication Studies),

University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign (Communication), 

University of Colorado-Boulder (Media Studies),

Bowling Green State University (Media and Communication),

University of New Mexico (Communication),

and University of Wisconsin-Madison (Communication)

 

My work involves critical discourse analysis and ethnographic research into reactionary extremist groups online, so it seems our interests are somewhat related!

Awesome list! We have some in common, like USC, Rutgers, and UPenn. By the way, did you apply for USC during the priority deadline? I was wondering why they had the priority deadline this year. I know that was not for funding purpose..

Great!!! They are not supposed to favor anyone just for applying in the priority deadline.  However, I am curious about this priority as it is not about funding issues.

Does anyone have any news? From what I've been seeing, communication programs usually only give results from January, right?

I haven't heard from any university. I also applied to UMass, UFlorida, Rutgers and UCSB.

For the MCC programme, they shortlist 10 candidates for the interview. I have applied to Uchicago, Stanford and Rutgers for Anthro. This whole endeavour seems so doomed T_T
